From the press release:

WALTHAM, Mass.— 18 Jun 2007— Novell today announced that the first service pack (SP1) for SUSE® Linux Enterprise 10 is now available to customers worldwide. Featuring significant enhancements in virtualization, high-performance computing, security, interoperability and system management, SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP1 from Novell® lets organizations take advantage of the latest technical advances in the best-engineered, lowest-cost and most-interoperable platform for mission-critical computing.

Novell today also announced the commercial availability of the SUSE Linux Enterprise Virtual Machine Driver Pack, a bundle of paravirtualized network, bus and block device drivers that enable unmodified Windows* and Linux* guest operating systems to run with near native performance in virtual environments created with the Xen* hypervisor technology integrated in SUSE Linux Enterprise and Intel* Virtualization Technology and AMD* Virtualization hardware.

“SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP1 gives us the opportunity to create cost-effective solutions for our customers who are running different platforms,” said Jan Aril Sigvartsen, CEO of hosting provider WebDeal. “For example, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server gives us the opportunity to run the same distribution on all our different architectures, while virtualization lets us easily run more than one operating system on the same hardware and move this virtual system around in our data center without downtime. This has been a cost-effective solution for us.”
